Forbearance to stay the course

"Waters of Life"
Artist: Marc Chagall

Meditation practice is a powerful way of getting deeply in touch with your life at its most essential level. As you become more in touch with your life at this level, you naturally become more attentive, awake, and attuned to your thoughts, emotions, and inner currents.

Meditation practice is a spiritual process that unfolds with your life. It requires no doctrine or belief system, and it can be adapted to many purposes and systems of thought. In its broadest sense, meditation practice is an approach to life that promotes self-awareness, self-kindness, and self-forgiveness and brings us the clarity to see what we need to do in our lives and the forbearance to stay the course.

-- Norman Fischer

  1. Ellie, I could spend days meditating upon your post on your three blogs. This is such a good reminder and inspiration that I'm going to copy and print it for myself. Thank you. Wish I lived near you to go to your meditation center!
